Sukka at the Gates of Rome (Columbia University)

005001002003004

Out on a walk with the dog to Riverside Park and struck by the difference in scale between the little mobile sukka and the diminutive figure of the rabbinical student (?) just outside the massive gates leading into the pagan citadel of learning. Passing by, I heard him explaining the holiday to a curious security guard. On the other side of Broadway, the scene is obscured by passerby on a bright sunny day.
